    Chief Joseph: War Chief of the Nez Perce is a historical text about Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce, whose tribe resisted the United State's attempts to remove them from their home in Wallowa Valley in Oregon. U.S. Army General Oliver Howard chased Chief Joseph and his people more than 1,000 miles through Idaho, Wyoming and Montana until they finally surrendered in 1877 near the Canadian border. The book documents the moral injustices and evils of US Indian removal and Chief Joseph's tribe's attempts to defend themselves.
